Cleve Clin J Med. 2013 Feb;80(2):101-8
Authors: Agito MD, Atreja A, Rizk MK

Recurrence of infection after treatment with standard antibiotics is becoming more common with the emergence of more-resistant strains of C difficile. Fecal microbiota transplantation is an alternative treatment for recurrent C difficile infection, but it is not yet widely used.
